Journal of International Media and Entertainment Law

The Journal of International Media and Entertainment Law is a semi-annual publication of the Forums on Communications Law and the Entertainment and Sports Industries of the American Bar Association and the Donald E. Biederman Entertainment and Media Law Institute of Southwestern Law School.

The Journal provides a forum for exploring the complex and unsettled legal principles that apply to the international distribution of media and entertainment. The legal issues surrounding the creation and distribution of news and entertainment products on a worldwide basis necessarily implicate the laws, customs, and practices of multiple jurisdictions. The Journal examines the impact of the Internet and other technologies, the often conflicting laws affecting media and entertainment issues, and the legal ramifications of widely divergent cultural views of privacy, defamation, intellectual property, and government regulation.

An article from a recent edition of the Journal was co-authored by Bruce E.H. Johnson and Kyu Ho Youm:
